Henry County Mulls 911 Upgrade/Consolidation

Paris, TN – Henry County, Tennessee is considering a new building for its 911 system. Board members moved to hire a Cookeville architectural and engineering firm Monday to prepare a feasibility study. The Paris Post-Intelligencer reports the building will not only house the 911 Dispatch Center, but also office space that could include room for other agencies, like Henry County's Emergency Management and Emergency Medical Services. 911 Director Mark Archer says the new building would be a step closer to a central dispatch center. The current 911 center dates back to the early 1960s.
